Stop by to see the work of a student you might know or a blossoming Van Gogh!

MS is a disease that involves an immune system attack against the central nervous system and is thought to affect more than 2.1 million people worldwide. Walk MS seeks to be the rallying point of the MS movement- bringing the community together to raise funds and celebrate hope! This walk is free and registration begins at 1 pm on Sunday. People can register as individuals or a team and are encouraged to fundraise for the cause. Those who raise $125 will receive a Walk MS t-shirt. For more information, contact Vicky Wehner at
